Milla had two friends,
but more than friends they really
were; Ginger, her red
pony, whom she strolled with
rather than rode, & Jo-Jo,

her phantom brother;
imaginary he was,
but also loving;
both staying by her night &
day, inside and out, faithful.

The three of them played together,
thus keeping loneliness at bay.

For G-Man & Brian Miller, two tankas, and a couplet for fun.

Friends are important....even imaginary ones! Sometimes it is the imaginary ones who are the best friends of all!! Nice one, Glenn.
